The Met Fifth Avenue, at 82nd Street

 

The Metropolitan Museum of Art will host its first ever World Culture Festival on Saturday, November 5, from noon to 5 p.m. with the theme of Epic Stories. Through performances, art-making activities, storytelling, and more, participants of all ages will discover larger-than-life characters and tales from cultures around the world. The festival is free with Museum admission. Unless otherwise noted, experiences are best for those age three and up; special gallery conversations are geared towards adults who wish to have peer-to-peer engagement. Exhibitions on view at both The Met Fifth Avenue and The Met Breuer will be open during the festival.

World Culture Festival: Epic Stories program information and directions to events will be available at the information desks in the Great Hall (at the main entrance at Fifth Avenue and 82nd Street) and the Ruth and Harold D. Uris Center for Education (at the ground-floor entrance at Fifth Avenue and 81st Street). Large-print schedules and assistive listening devices will also be available at the information desks. The festival is free with Museum admission.

The cafeteria on the Museum’s ground floor will celebrate World Culture Festival: Epic Stories by offering a special menu.
